Classic Ham Omelet

Cooking for two? Just double the measurements for a healthy morning start. To make this a low-carb meal, add a slice of cheddar cheese. To make this a high-carb meal, add a portion of your favorite fruit.

3 egg whites
1 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp low-sodium ham, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
2 tbsp tomatoes, chopped

In a small bowl, whisk egg whites for about 45 seconds. Heat oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the egg whites to the pan. Slowly turn the pan to ensure the egg mixture covers the entire bottom. Using a rubber spatula, gently lift the edges of the omelet, tilting the pan so the remaining liquid can go beneath the egg and begin to cook. Let the omelet finish cooking (when egg whites have set) on one side, then using a spatula carefully flip it over to continue cooking on the other side. Sprinkle the rest of the ingredients onto the center of the omelet and continue cooking. Fold the omelet in half to enclose the added ingredients. Enjoy!
